Recently WorldBook Online added three new features to WorldBook Online – Discover, Decouverte and pathfinders.

WorldBook Discover

Discover is research tool.  It has topics you can select. Selecting one gives the viewer a brief overview and links into the various WorldBook encyclopedias.  But the real cool  part of this resource is in it’s special features:

  • Build and print your own timeline!
  • Visual Dictionary
  • Life Skills Center

Decouverte is the French version of Worldbook Online.

Pathfinders are created by Worldbook research staff or individuals.  This is a great tool for teachers!  You share the pathfinders with anyone access Worldbook Online or you can keep them private.
